Sweet love the canopy How hard was it to make?
Oh you need a cam in front of Wilson JR

I just looked at your tail feathers and looks good but I am glad to see the background looks like my work area messy.

Yes, now that you mention it ...I would like my kitchen table back at some point this year !!! The problem stems from, Oh well,you know the story I'm sure you heard it before,,, Way to many planes,to many under construction, and on and on...
The canopy is from parkflyerplastics.com they have it and a bellyskid plate for $10 plus shipping ...very nice just search Multiplex ,they even have an instructions page...

I use a pencil soldering iron to melt a 1/8" boarder ( 2 hooks wide ) .

If you buy your velcro in long ribbons you may find 2 factory edges already "fixed" as per image.

Good tip but I use 3m90 or hot glue.

This was a year ago..This is my first EZ in the video ,it was repaired ,crashed ,repaired and so retired.. But,I put everything in the new EZ ,flew it out of Tx range,Painted the wings neon yellow and started upgrading as you can see..This is my goto flyer....Guy's at my club are starting to notice I stay up in the air so long I'm dehydrated when I bring it down... I can't wait to try out this new power system , 23 oz of thrust WoW !!! That's twice what it had I was using a MD -80 thumb cam ,but now I mount a keychain cam uder the wing in two spots ,out on the wing and next to the fuz under the wing....The md-80 was mounted in the canopy on the 1st one.I like both mountings,so I'll build another canopy for the md-80 ,I think I'll order a HK,God ,this is addictive is'nt it...Is there a support group for this It's been raining or windy since I did the upgrade's over a week now .......The agggony ......
